implement. but new york state has been through a tax gap, a lot of other budget cuts. and so the things that teachers actually need to do, work together with each other, use the standards as guidelines not as straitjackets, have to return them, that didn't happen. and a couple places it did. in a lot of places it didn't. the big mistake that i think both the federal government made and people like doug king made is the lead with testing. king would save you, i just was sick and tired of telling people what to do and then not doing it. you are the state chief. that's not your job to tell people what to do. your job is to help navigate people through this. so consequently, last year in new york there were in k-12, and elementary schools there were these tests and a lot of people were not prepared. and then john keane and other said was the test results will be 30% less next year, issued anywhere right now. so be prepared. so then the question is how do they actually know the exact number. seven creates huge distrust because you can actually forget what the cuts were for, how to align it.

doing that with respect to a number of higher education programs, loans, grants, tax benefits outside of the program. outside of the unsubsidized ones delivering that money to the states, then what's the states do what they think is best in order to achieve the type of outcome that they have in indiana. imagine being able to say to an eighth-grade student if you work hard in high school would guarantee that you can go to a four year -- you can go to a college -- you can go to a public college of your choice with your state at the very least without incurring any new debt. that type of promise as possible. students that have the talent and the desire to drive the postsecondary education should be able to do so without being hindered by the inability to pay. that was the vision 40 years ago. i still think that it's right to do. >> thank you mr. dannenberg. mr. heath coming you are recognized for five minutes. >> chairwoman fox, ranking member hinojosa and members of the committee. i'm pleased to be here today to present his testimony on behalf of my institution. on behalf of the 17 prof
